i bought 5 mastercraft MT's off craigslistwith rims for $250, had them balanced. one tire had the sidewall swelled out so i put on the spare, (brand spankin' new), now where should i put the tire with the most tread to wear down the best?
i have it on the rear drivers side, but now the rear passengers side is wearing down more than the front tires.
trying to make them last as long as i can, i'me a poor high school kid that is trying to build something nice, any advice is great, here is a picture, just to show it off
All you can really do is rotate the tires every 5k, it is your choice if you go front to back or X pattern.
Keep your eyes on craigs to pick up a good spare, as long as you keep the same type ie all terrain you can mix and match. I am not a fan of this but you can do it safely.
i might give that a try, if my piece of SH%T 2.5 liter won't do a burnout, i guess i'll just mix and match, i have 2 BFG mud terrains sittin around from my last group of tires, they allmost have the same lug pattern too.
The front tires will wear out the fastest. If it was my jeep I would buy another matching tire and mount both good tires on the front and then use the other tire as your new spare. Sometimes you have to spend money to save money. Just my Opinion
trust me... i would just buy another new one, but i have $13 bucks to my name at the moment, and thats going to taco bell, and a can of spray paint so thats not gonna happen. (remember, i'me on a high school budget) i guess i will mount my spare BFG mud terrain where the new tire is and use the new one as a spare???
or... just drive them till they crap out (still rotating them), then replace the one that craps out first with my spare, then when another craps out just replace it with my extra spare tire (both BFG mud terrains) they won't match but they will work for a while.
oh yeah... tried a burnout... it won't do it, even if it wanted to
The only way I could see wearing out the new tire to match the others would be to keep it in the front at all times and rotating it side to side. Then rotate the other 3 tires between the back and front. ??
Or.. you could use the new tire as the spare for a while until you save enough cash (etc... forget taco bell and get pb&j sandwich) to buy a new one. Then put them both on the front and the tires should last you for a while.
I would take the worst tire as spare. it is there to get out of trouble not to look pretty.
A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.
Nice Jeep man, hope you get the tire issue worked out... One problem I see though- ITS TOO CLEAN!
true... it is to clean, thats why i took a picture, you can actually see what it looks like, i did have it all burried up in the back yard (38 acres... i live in KENTUCKY) and i pulled in the garage and left giant chunks of mud everywhere, so i washed it, but it'll be muddy again as soon as it rains (or snows)
anyways, i guess i'll save and buy a new tire, i never went to taco bell, i spent my last $13 on kryon and gas...after i noticed it was on empty, or atleast thats what it said... you can never really tell, stupid thing wobbles back and forth so much i don't even know what to think but i just got paid so i'll save some cash for a new tire... and a lift
